To denim or not to denim: that is the question.
Denim on denim can appear to be a fashion faux pas. Something about the double-denim trend—often referred to as a Canadian tuxedo can be intimidating but looks flawless when done correctly.
The trick for this trend is all in the pieces you choose. Nobody wants to look like they just stepped straight out of the 80’s or a country western. Your look needs to have an updated feel which is why we have put this post together, outlining the basics and general rules of double denim and how to make it work!
DO: Play with different shades, washes, and cuts
Before diving into shades of double-blue, start out by matching different shades of denim together, like white jeans and a blue denim jacket, or black jeans and a chambray shirt. It’s almost impossible to go wrong this way and it gives more variety without looking too matchy-matchy.
DON’T: Wear Denim Accessories
Keep the jeans confined to your clothing, and just say “no” to denim shoes, a denim hat, a denim handbag, or any other accessory.
DO: Embrace Distress Denim
Distressed denim is current, cool, and define effortless style—so don’t be afraid to rip away.
DO: Dress up Your Double Denim
Be fearless and raise the bar on your outfit with luxe items, including statement heels, a blazer, or a bold lip.
Double denim is a classic look that continues to reinvent itself, it’s a fabric that appeals to everyone and quite versatile for all your fashion essentials. Trust us this trend is not going away.
